shown that instruments with lumen and hollow tubes are
difficult to effect air removal and sterilant penetration.
They have a tendency to collect non-condensable gases
inside the lumen or minimum invasive surgery (MIS)
instruments which can affect the sterilization of inside
Standard chemical integrators and biological indicators
can measure sterilization on the outer surface only.
Rups Batch Monitoring System is available for Steam, EO
Rups Batch Monitoring System is a specialized
monitoring system consists of two parts:
Process Challenged Device (PCD) that simulates the most
difficult of instrument conditions in the hollow
instruments like MIS, etc.
Specialized Class 2 Chemical Indicators are used inside
the PCD to ensure that air removal and steam penetration
parameters have been achieved.
integrator is placed in the capsule of PCD and closed.
Inside the sterilizer the sterilant has to enter from the
open end, pass through the entire length of coiled tube
and then reaches the capsule.
The complete change in color guarantees sterilization of
both inside and outside of hollow and complex devices.
Complies per EN Standard 867 part 5.
